Key responsibilities:

  • Plan and manage day-to-day video production for the agency itself and our clients
  • Grow our video revenue to the point where it can support a team of its own
  • Be our go-to video expert, ready to pitch in with existing clients and new business proposals
  • Ensure you are at the bleeding edge of what is possible in video, and disseminate this information across the agency

Be fully immersed in the world of video production and digital marketing. You unconsciously deconstruct shots in your favourite films to figure out how they were achieved. You understand the various roles of video throughout the customer lifecycle, and you can confidently recommend different video treatments which will meet varying client objectives.

You will have more than 5 years of video production experience under your belt, experience building and running teams, know how to run video projects start-to-finish, and be comfortable taking responsibility for, and aggressively growing, your own revenue stream.

The interview process:

We’ll kick off with a coffee to assess your suitability for the role. If we think you’re a good fit, we’ll invite you for an interview at our office. If we like what you’ve got to say, the final stage is a second interview with other senior members of our team.
